    Pros

    Crazy smart people. Very thoughtful and engaged management. Strong, consistent culture. This is the Google of Wall Street.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay as high as other firms. Slow to embrace change. Management can be a bit too hands-off.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to encourage more innovation structurally. Currently, new ideas are too easily stifled.
